Day 70/180: How to love your Long-Term Sub

I’ve learned a lot from this experience.

I also hope that others can learn from me. In case you’re ever in need of a long-term sub, here’s a handy document I made. It consists of all of the questions I had to ask someone I order to do my job for those 12 weeks. Basically, I wish I had been given a New Staff Orientation (or something like that), plus a bunch of questions for the regular teacher, so that I could better fit into her classroom, including approximate curriculum, late work policies, whether kids can listen to music during class, and so on. The teacher I subbed for was super helpful, and just wanted to make sure her kids were taken care of while she was on maternity leave. As a classroom teacher, you don’t always know or have the capacity to do this in advance, but this list of stuff was very useful to me.

Tomorrow, I’ll have some more thoughts.
